Software Description:
- cinder: OpenStack storage service


JuanFra Rodriguez Cardoso discovered that OpenStack Cinder did not enforce
SSL connections when Nova was configured to use QPid and qpid_protocol is

attack, this flaw could be exploited to view sensitive information. Ubuntu
does not use QPid with Nova by default.

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 12.10:
  python-cinder                   2012.2.4-0ubuntu1.1

In general, a standard system update will make all the necessary changes.
